Well maybe you don't care, but there are folks that do (I'm on that list) ;-) I want the speed of C but the safety of C#.

There are many pieces of code that you probably use every day that go to great lengths to squeeze as much power as possible. Why not help these folks help us? I'm glad there is more focus on performance because we all benefit. (Hoping to see more on the CLR side.)




> I want the speed of C but the safety of C#

Rust or D seem like the best bet here


Why c# and not rust or something similar that has a lower level focus?


Because some of us believe in GC enabled systems programming languages, as done already at Xerox PARC (Cedar), DEC (Modula-2+/Modula-3), ETHZ (Oberon, Active Oberon, Component Pascal) and MSR (Sing# / System C#).

What is missing is a company like Microsoft to push it down to mainstream developers, at all costs, like it happen to all luddites.

Try OCaml.

Use a tractor.
